The problem is that much of the cuts are in Defense.

It sucks to be broke.

The cuts are coming to defense, one way or the other. If we default, the cuts will be a lot bigger than these.

Probaby. But defense is one of the legitimate responsibilities of Government. It will be sacrificed to pay for things like healthcare, welfare, etc. And the fact that the Defense industry disproportionately employs conservatives is just a bigger bonus for the Left.
